Vancouver turns green: St. Patrick's Day Parade in Vancouver!

Sharing is caring!

This year’s 11th edition of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the largest and most popular free event among all events during the Celtic Fest Vancouver 2015. It draws people from all over the world with different cultures, backgrounds and ages. The parade, predominantly green, will start on Sunday, March 15th at 11:00am on Howe and Davie, proceeding north along Howe to Georgia, and ending at Georgia & Granville Streets.

Crowds exceeding 200000 are expected to line the route to cheer on more than 2000 parade participants, possibly including award winning pipe and drum bands, Celtic musicians, Scottish and Irish dancers, acrobats, stilt walkers, vintage cars, the Vancouver police motorcycle drill team and pipe band, fire and police dogs, mounted horse drill teams, multi-cultural organizations and performers, local businesses, distinguished guests and many more.

Be sure to also catch the free Celtic entertainment throughout the March 14-15 weekend at the Celtic Village & Street Market on Granville Street and Robson Square in Downtown Vancouver.
